Multicultural Framework Review

​The aim of the Multicultural Framework Review was to look at ways for government and the community, to work together to support a cohesive multicultural society and to advance a vibrant and prosperous future for all Australians.

The Australian Government appointed a panel of three eminent Australians to conduct the Review to advise the Government on what institutional, legislative and policy settings can best build Australia’s multiculturalism over the next decade, and to identify how to better meet the needs of Australia’s increasingly diverse society. The Review Panel’s expertise and experience will shape the way that Government works with multicultural Australia going forward.

The Review Panel conducted comprehensive nation-wide public consultation in regional and metro locations, on the issues outlined in the Review’s Terms of Reference.

The Review applied an innovate approach to accepting submissions and promoting inclusion and participation in the Review. A tailored submission portal was created to accept submissions in all languages and by written, audio and video formats. The Review art competition was also established as a channel for children and young people to be involved and represent their vision of a multicultural Australia.

Participation from multicultural communities of all ages was actively promoted, via in language targeted media campaigns supported by translated Review information in ​35 languages, in audio and video formats. Accessibility was at the forefront of the Review and a key priority to ensure that a range of perspectives were captured, reflective of Australia’s diverse communities.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Review, your contribution and commitment has directly informed and helped shape the Review. The Review Panel has now finalised their report and this is currently under consideration by Government.
